Vogue US Celebrates Team USA on the June 2012 Cover & a Fashion Spread Starring Karlie Kloss with Star Athletes


For the June 2012 issue of Vogue US magazine, they are celebrating "Team USA" on the cover which features soccer star Hope Solo, swimmer Ryan Lochte and tennis star Serena Williams. The cover was shot by fame photographer Annie Leibovitz which shows the three stars in "Baywatch" style running on the beach. Apparently, Ryan is the fourth male to ever grace the cover of Vogue. The Theme for the cover is the 2012 London Olympics of course which have received a lot of buzz. Stella McCartney is designing the "blue & white" uniform for Great Britain, Armani is doing Italy and Ralph Lauren for the Americans. Continue to below to see an amazing fashion spread starring supermodel Karlie Kloss and more of America's Olympic hopefuls that include Ryan Lochte, Dwayne Wade, Ashton Eaton, Jonathan Horton and the Bryan Brothers. To read the article go to Vogue.com. Do you like the "Baywatch" inspired cover though or do you think they should have been in their uniforms? I love the Karlie Kloss spread though. What do you think?
